WARREN — Thieves looking for prescription narcotics apparently busted into a Warren pharmacy early Nov. 18, but left without successfully accessing a safe where the drugs were stored.

Detective Sgt. Rob Eidt, of the Warren Police Department, said patrol units responded to an alarm call at about 3 a.m. at Benzer Pharmacy, 28577 Schoenherr Road, south of 12 Mile Road.

“There was an interior door that was forced open, which led into an area where the controlled substances were held,” Eidt said. “It looks like they went for the safe. It would appear that they moved it, but were unable to gain entry into the safe. The suspects then fled the scene.”

Police continued to review evidence at press time, and the break-in remained under investigation.

The suspects reportedly concealed their faces, but were both described as 5 feet 7 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, and weighing 170-190 pounds. Both reportedly wore grey hooded sweatshirts and jeans. It was believed they left in a dark minivan or SUV.

Anyone with information about the break-in or the suspects involved can reach Warren detectives at (586) 574-4810.
